The fiery eye of Ra shows as a brace of cobras (asps) rearing up to protect the wearer from all enemies and flanks a lotus with the promise of everlasting life. The original bale features a gold papyrus umbrel which served as a general offering to the gods and was symbolic of joy.
The amulet is embellished with red, green and black enamel. Ancient Egyptians believed that green was the color of freshness and life. Because of its association with life black and green were used interchangeably. Red was linked with regeneration and the defense against forces which threatened order. Gold or yellow was used primarily for high royals and was associated with the concept of eternity and imperishability.
